Incentive/Summary Kentucky Administrative Regulation Title 4 …
Kentucky Administrative Regulation Title 405 chapters 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 18 and 20 establish the laws governing coal mining in the state. The Department of Natural Resources under the authority of the Energy and Environment Cabinet is responsible for enforcing these laws and assuring compliance with the 1977 Federal Surface Mining Control Act (SMCRA). The Division of Mine Reclamation and Enforcement is responsible for inspecting all surface and underground coal mining permits in the state. The Division of Mine permits is responsible for issuing all permits related to coal mining. The Division of Abandoned Mine Lands is responsible for ensuring that all mines are properly closed down and will not pose a threat to the public once they are closed. All certifications and mining specialties, as established by the Kentucky Mining Board, must be signed by the Director (KOMSL) verifying the holder has completed the requirements for certification. All coal miners must be drug tested prior to being issued any new certification. New miners must have 24 hours of training and pass a written exam before being eligible for employment at a surface mine. Workers at prep plants, rail sidings, and river terminals must also meet those training requirements. The inexperienced miner must work a minimum of 45 days at a surface mine before becoming a certified experienced miner. After the initial training, each surface mine employee is required to receive eight hours of retraining annually. To obtain a Surface Mine Foreman Certification, a miner must have three years of surface mining experience achieved after age 18. To obtain certification, a surface mine foreman must specialize in either coal extraction or post mining activities (coal preparation or coal handling). The applicant must have at least one year of practical experience in the specialty category. To become a blaster in a surface coal mine, the applicant must attend 30 hours of training and pass both a licensing and certification test. Two years of additional work experience under a licensed blaster is required. The federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA) established authority for the AML Fund. Production fees of $0.325 per ton for surface-mined coal and $0.125 per ton for underground-mined coal are collected from coal producers at all active coal mining operations.
